  1. My favourite cream stick roll on unfortunately got discontinued. It was the Nivea Stress Protect in a wind up cream formula – but was never, ever sticky and kept me dry and free of white marks all day and night! Now they've changed it to a sticky roll on, roller ball one which is horrible! If I ever see the original one in a random pharmacy, I stock up on at least 10! That's how good it was! Since then, I've tried many other drugstore brands which are all sticky, don't dry, leave powder and marks behind… just awful! I don't understand why the best products always get discontinued. Most of the "anti white mark" ones are complete lies. I wear only black and dark colours, and they definitely leave white marks on everything, even my bras… that Garnier Mineral one is the only decent spray on one I've found which doesn't have this problem. Unfortunately I can only get it at Chemist Warehouse unlike Dove, Rexona etc. So whenever I go there I stock up. Let's hope it doesn't get discontinued too. They used to have a bigger range (different scents) but now I'm lucky to find the one… I'm tired of wasting money on horrible deodorants… if anyone knows of any like the one I described, please let me know. I don't trust the reviews because I've tested these myself.

  2. I have my father's sweaty genes, I hate it…but…I found the rexona clinical protection summer strength works best for me. The turn the bottom and cream comes out the top one. I use it every night before I go to bed, and it works so well that I don't have to worry if a forget a day or two. I used to be so embarrassed by the sweat marks on all my clothes.

  3. My partner and I are very sweaty. He likes aluminium free as he finds that other deodorants would stain his shirts when he would sweat. He doesn't have that issue now that he has swapped. I still use aluminium based deodorants as I just sweat so much and get stinky with more of the natural brands.

  4. Black Chicken Axilla Cream Deodorant is what I've been using for years now – effective and natural. Messy for some to apply (with fingers) but I have a Akin Natural Spray Deodorant as well in case I go somewhere and don't want to use the cream.

    Some people can't tolerate this cream deodorant (due to the bicarb soda) including my daughter and they have produced one for sensitive skin called Barrier Boost – my daughter has uses it, but didn't find it effective and I've used it and also don't find it as effective as their Original formula.

  5. I really do love the dove one but switch from that to nivea roll on and rexona spray depending on the smell and clothing I prefer on the day, seems to last all very similar.

  6. Out if these I've tried the QV, but the roll on and it's great in the cooler months, but doesn't cut it in the warm weather for me. I really like No Pong and Fresca, both are very good in the hot months.

  7. I like to alternate my deodorants so have several. I find if I use the same one all the time it loses its effectiveness. Like someone else commented I like Rexona's Sexy Bouquet and another I really like using is the Norsca Alluminium free one.

  8. My fave deo: micellar water! Yup. Discovered when I use micellar (just a wipe there), I stay fresh all day! Have travel sized mini bottle and a reusable pad in my bag when if need it.

  9. Garnier Mineral Deodorant! Unfortunately can only be found in Chemist Warehouse, so I always stock up on it. Also, my fave roll on – Nivea Antiperspirant Roll on (cream one which sadly has been discontinued). I tried other roll on but they’re all sticky!
